I prepared a fruit tray for my daughter-in-law's baby shower. I made a watermelon baby carriage; embellished the tray with my son's Charlie Brown character, flowers and greenery. I used cantaloupe balls, strawberries, kiwi, grapes, fresh pineapple, peaches and blueberries. I used lemon rounds for the "wheels" of the carriage, cut a slice into a baby carriage "handle". I placed small pieces of fruit (grapes, blueberries, etc.) to cover toothpicks. I made orange, lemon and lime baskets to fill in corners of the tray and filled them with small fruits. I served it with vanilla and chocolate fruit dip. The chocolate fruit dip was placed in a 31 year old ceramic baby carriage.

The fruit tray was lined with a rectangle paper doily, then hydranga leaves were placed on the inside of the tray. The halves of a small watermelon and canteloupe were carved into boats. The pineapple was cut in half; the leaves of one half were cut off and discarded. The fruit of the melons and pineapple were cut into balls or cut into cubes and refrigerated until the tray was assembled.
The lemons and limes and oranges were used for fruit carvings, plus a few of the strawberries were carved into roses for garnishments. English ivy and other greenery were used to adorn the garnishments which were used on the completed tray. The heart shaped pedestal bowls were used for fruit dip; these bowls are adored with tulle and resemble a wedding veil. Serve with chocolate and vanilla fruit dip or any fruit dip of your choice.
The fruit tray assembled is:
